Lord of War
- 2 hr 3 min
Lord of War is one of Nicholas Cage's most engaging roles. He's an International gun runner who has found his fortune selling stockpiles of weapons to third world nations after the fall of the Soviet Union. Nations that are at war will buy from anyone that has the weapons they need, and Cage has the weapons everyone is looking for. He is unscrupulous, and only cares about the money, not who gets the weapons. After the collapse of the Soviet Union there are an abundance of these weapons to anyone that knows their way around, and Yuri Onlov, Cage's character, knows his way around quite well. He buys the weapons for a great price, or steals them, and sells them to the highest bidder. He is being hunted by Jack Valentine, an Interpol agent, played quite well by Ethan Hawke. Cage does not think that anyone will ever catch him as he travels around the world making deals, and selling death as this intriguing tale weaves its way through the poorest countries in the world. He supplies any army in the world that needs a weapon. He gains the nick name, The Lord Of War. Cage is funny, engaging, and very good in this role. He has a beautiful wife who is unaware of what he does for a living, and just goes along for the ride. The plight of the third world countries involved in gun running and buying is very believable and the host of supporting actors makes this a must go see movie. This is a movie made from the real live events of the real Yuri Onlov. Lord of War is action packed and funny, full of stories of real situations around the world,a good movie for everyone. Nicholas Cage, Bridget Moynahan, Ian Holm, and Ethan Hawke make for a cast to be remembered in this action packed movie.
